University Council for Education Administration, Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education (www.schooltechleadership.org). CASTLE is a Partnership between Iowa State University and the University of Kentucky.
When Dr. Scott McLeod, CASTLE Director, was at the University of Minnesota, he co-created the first graduate program in the United States designed to prepare technology-savvy school leaders. The School Technology Leadership Initiative (STLI) was the first academic program based on the National Educational Technology Standards for Administrators (NETS-A) and was the only one proven (by the American Institutes for Research) to have positive, statistically-significant impacts on participants’ technology leadership knowledge, skills, and abilities. We ran four cohorts through that program before Dr. McLeod came to Iowa State University and it was a phenomenal experience.
The Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education (CASTLE), located at UK, partners with regional educational organizations and schools to facilitate the implementation of technologies that help improve teaching and student learning. At UK, CASTLE will work with the College of Education’s Kentucky P20 Innovation Lab.
Dr. Justin Bathon, CASTLE Associate Director and UK Assistant Professor, supports the goals and mission of the nation’s only center dedicated to the technology needs of school administrators. To develop and launch university educational leadership programs involves preparing technology-talented school leaders while offering a wealth of resources to K-12 administrators and college faculty, collectively.
